How to become an AKC

OAKC Reggie lionnce you have completed the AKC and graduated from your main degree programme, you are eligible to apply for election as an Associate of King's College. 

After you have been elected as an Associate of King's College by Academic Board, you will be entitled to use the letters AKC after your name.

There is a charge of £6 to process your certificate application and you can now apply via the King's College Online Store.
